was named after lisa dolan's husband, navy captain bob dolan, who died in the pentagon on 9/11. on the today show, lisa met puppy, dolan, for the first time >> hello, baby. >> reporter: 18 months later, dolan is all grown up. and with his handler, now ready to graduate from the tsa's bomb detection academy. >> good, good, over here. >> reporter: a big day for which lisa and daughter, rebecca, have driven all the way to san antonio. >> hello, baby, do you remember me? >> reporter: so what is it like to see him all grown up? >> it is just wonderful, wonderful. i know now that he is going to go out there and he is going to work. >> reporter: sniffing for bombs is a big game for the tsa dogs, but almost half the puppies in the program wash out. not dolan, now he is leaving the training terminal here in texas and headed for a new assignment in maui, and heading there with two of his classmates. handler frank diangelo is going with him. >> every time i hear the name, dolan, i think of you. >> reporter: for her dad, who was a technician, it all came full circle. >> i am really proud when i tell peo
-mails to the second woman. this isn't just a love triangle, information. it's a love pentagon. ( cheers and applause ). i gotta say-- i gotta say, after that, it gets a little farfetched. i mean, all of a sudden, the second woman hans emotionally troubled identical twin. and both the spy mast expert general write letters of support for the twin sister's custody battle with her econclusion? oh, and listen to the name they came up with for him? grayson wolf. jimmy, we don't have a picture of him yet, so just put up a visual approximation. that's right. ( cheers and applause ). folks, i have to say, it's just not believable anymore. ( laughter ) i-- i think the news has jumped the shark. and the most unbelievable parts, they say that-- that-- that the general down there, that general over there, he is the top commander of our war in afghanistan. afghanistan? really? ( laughter ) please. if our troops were really still fighting in afghanistan, don't you think we'd be hearing about that on the news instead of all this bull ( bleep )? ( cheers and applause ) not believable. anyway. anyway, bottom line,
this sort of papa. this is very seductive if you're in the pentagon you have this list of individuals plotting against the united states. if you come across these names off the list makes it feel as though you keep the united states safer. i think there's a faulty logic going on in there. we've seen over the past decade the u.s. is fighting wars that just killing these particular individuals is in itself make us safer because so often many more people, put in the ranks. there's also a tendency to personalize al qaeda appeared particularly in yemen we saw this with the american-born cleric, the individual that the argument was advanced that if he could be killed the u.s. would be safer. he was as close killed in the drone strike and said number 2011. we know they had a plan in which they gave the latest version thankfully to an undercover agent. so not on where a lackey hasn't crossed list we talk about ibrahim sharqieh were all worried about. there's a couple important things to remember. one, abdu rabu mansour hadi wasn't a member of al qaeda. this is an individual radical license. t
been put on hold as the pentagon inspector general investigates his friendship with another woman. add to that the escalating tension between israel and hamas and the head spins, martha. >> you need a flow chart for this week. incredible that one week ago tonight we learned about david petraeus and that he resigned as c.i.a. director and today he is up on capitol hill testifying about benghazi. of course, this happened september 11 of this year, the attack in benghazi. a lot of different stories right away about why that happened, how that happened, but it was susan rice, u.n. ambassador, i think it was five days later on the sunday talk shows saying that she thought it came as a result of some protests and because of the egyptian in cairo, there were protests about this anti-muslim film. the republicans have pounced on that. you heard john mccain and lindsey graham saying there is no way they want her to be secretary of state, nominated to secretary of state. everybody knew that it was terrorism. >> everybody knew it was terrorism. well, today, one of the things that david petraeus sa
tridivision headquarters right back to the pentagon. we said that should never happen again. so we looked at command of control relationships in this exercise. so we're going to bring up the next panel and this exercise was conducted in august and we're going to take a few minutes to get the panel up here and we'll have the panel moderator introduce us, john vaughan from harris, but if any of you need to make a head call, behind these screens we have men and women's heads, restrooms for those of you who don't know the term. behind those screens. rich is telling me i'm going back wrong end of the ship, back that way behind the screens, so feel free to go back there. so let's take a few minutes now and bring the panel up and the panel moderator, john vaughan thank my name is john vaughan, i'm from harris corporation. we're delighted a sponsor again this year of san francisco fleet week. our focus, if you had an opportunity to see on the way in the demonstration, is on interoperatability. this has been a challenge as lts general just mentioned. in the past we have been blocked in int
to defuse the situation. that is not all washington is doing. let's go to cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr in washington. barbara? >> the big concern here in washington is a ground war in gaza. there is growing concern that israeli troops and tank forces might cross the border and move into gaza. that is the major escalation that the u.s. does not want to see. so, the calculation now is, what does it take to make hamas stop its rocket attacks into israel and israel feel comfortable enough with that to pull back on the air strikes and pull back on any ground forces that it is assembling near the gaza border. there has been a lot of diplomacy going on. defense secretary leon panetta traveling in asia, calling the israeli defense minister barack. secretary of state hillary clinton firing up the diplomatic phone lines calling israel, turkey and jordan. randi? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you. as you can see, cnn has every angle covered on this story. >>> much more ahead this hour. here's a look at what we have coming up. >>> on the brink of war. as fighting escalates between isr
the other committees that can only deal with the pentagon. you are right. get them together and let them get their story straight. >> my question for mike baker, as we have this information, does it change anything? >> i don't think the 52 or 53% who voted for the change in administration, i don't think they care. >> i completely agree. >> they go throughout the entire 24 hours not caring. >> i am stealing that joke. >> camille, you said ambassador rice should be towing the line when show goes on the shows. i keep reading the senators are making her a skate goat. i think she is a scapegoat, but it is president obama who made her the scapegoat. >> by the way, andy, what is a scapegoat? >> it is a goat that scapes. >> i don't believe that. what is a scapegoat? >> it is a goat that scapes ? >> where did that come from? >>- q. i we have a lot of animals -- >> we have a lot of animals. >> if it comes from the bibles they sacrifice a goat. >> a goat who couldn't escape. >> the goat would assume the since of the community and then they would sacrifice the goat. >> i didn't say that. >> can you go l
and of course, ohio, ohio, ohio. now, an unfolding pentagon scandal is stealing the headlines and a few states, by the way, want to succeed. george powell explains it all in the week that was. >> engaged in a cover up? >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> this is a petition asking the government what alabama should see from the union. >> secession, sparring and a sex scandal ruled the week that was one week after the election -- >> this is not simply a cover up of a third rate burglary. we have four of our dip lomatic personnel dead and demand accountability. >> if you want to know who is responsible in this path, buy yourself a mirror. >> reporter: and it's politics, as usual. as both parties battled over benghazi and, also, that thing over at the cia. >> it has been really disappointing and shocking to learn about this. >> i was embedded with general petraeus in afghanistan. >> jill kelley attended the citizen's academy and that's where they met. >> reporter: and the story expanded. general john allen, the top commander in afg
, if that wasn't enough, there's that poison pill, too. mandatory cuts. $55 billion at the pentagon. another $55 billion in domestic programs. everything from the education department to the parks service. altogether, this is $500 billion, which some say could send the country back into recession. for abc's "this week," martha raddatz asked the house democratic leader if there's room for compromise on that issue. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax increases for the wealthy? >> no. the president has been very clear that the higher-income people have to pay their fair share. >> reporter: while wall street liked the constructive talks, main street businesses want a deal. they can't plan, hire or increase production without knowing what taxes they'll be paying next year. the president is off to a four-day trip to asia. talks will continue. there's some predictions that something could be worked out before christmas. that may not be the big deal. but at least the framework that pushes a lot of this over into next year. >> that would be a great christmas gift. david, thank you. >>> b
. there will also be single tracking between pentagon city and reagan national airport on the blue and yellow line. now that single tracking is only for today. >>> some parents in a fast growing school district in our area are unhappy about a potential shuffle of where their kids go to school. rapidly growing loudoun county is proposing to redraw the lines between the school's seven elementary schools so attendance can be more balanced. the final plan could mean 1200 students in the ashburn and dulles north areas could be going to different schools come next fall and that has parents trying to leave things the way they are. >> i can't tell you how many girl scout leaders and all kinds of things that are all tied to that school. we've invested a lot in the school. >> it's more the principle of the back and forth, back and forth. >> parents can sound off at a public hearing coming up on december 3rd. the school board will decide on the final boundary plan on december 11th. >>> today three astronauts are preparing to return home after spending the last four months in space. the astronauts will perfor
. >> just a couple miles from the pentagon, many of the patriots here work directly or indirectly for the defense department and its contractors. the defense industry is facing $55 billion in discretionary funding cuts next year unless congress acts to avertthis so-called fiscal cliff. in addition, several key tax cuts are set to expire that will have a direct impact on many americans. take a look at a couple with one child living in new york earning $100,000. their tax rate jumps from 25% to 28%. they could be hit by the alternative minimum tax, the child tax credit drops from $1,000 to $500, and payroll tax could be $2,000 more the next year. for a single person in michigan going to school half time, his tax rate would stay the same, but he would lose the american education tax credit and have to pay more than $600 in payroll taxes. and even though it's weeks before the changes take effect, the impact is felt because of uncertainty. 401(k) companies have taken a hit. and the next thing to watch for, the retail sector which makes most of its money in the final weeks of the year.
and addison road. there is also single tracking between pentagon city and reagad yellow lines but that single tracking is only for today. we'll check your forecast next. stay with us. >>> we are waking up to a cool start. what does the afternoon and the thanksgiving holiday look like? let's get the forecast now from meteorologist chuck bell. >> good morning, richard. a good saturday morning everybody. off to a beautiful start today. nice, clear sky overhead. of course the clear skies during the overnight allow temperatures to cool back into the 20s and 30s so that's where we're starting for the most part. 28 now in winchester and front royal. 30 in culpepper, virginia. 32 in gaithersburg and germantown but 42 in annapolis and edgewater, maryland. today not a bad day at all. mostly sunny. high temperatures will reach up into the low and mid 50s. sun goes down just before 5:00 this afternoon and then for tomorrow a little bit more cloud cover and as a result probably a degree or two cooler on your sunday. highs up into the low 50s tomorrow. then staying cloudy and generally dry all the way thro
the pentagon -- military spending. what is your own view on whether or not this government should be prepared to go beyond the 400 a $7 billion the president targeted in terms of reduction in defense spending and go further? something closer to the $600 -- $600 billion figure. >> we did $487 billion in reductions as part of the original budget control act. it is important to know there were reductions up projected increases. it was not a reduction of the baseline. since then bowles had about as much savings if he went over the fiscal cliff. the sequester is an irresponsible way to deal with cuts weathered defense or non- defense because it is across the board. in terms of the magnitude of defense savings i think $5 billion cuts is excess of. i do think there are additional savings to be made a in defense. the chairman has said another $100 billion, others have made good arguments for how you can do a little bit -- the main issue is what is the military strategy. the reality is we are doing lots of things that enter the military that are still looking toward the cold war strategy. we need to f
. less revenue than simpson- bowles. >> you also get another $600 billion in savings from the pentagon. what is your view about whether this country should be prepared to go beyond the $487 billion that the president initially targeted? >> i do think there are additional savings to remain in defense spending. it is important to be clear that those reductions were reductions from projected increases. it lot -- it was not a reduction from the baseline. if you go off the fiscal cliff, it is not anothe $500 billion billion. that was part of the simpson- bowles framework. the sequester is an irresponsible way to do with cuts whether it is defense or non-defense. it is across the board bus soffex. in terms of the magnitude of defense savings, five of hundred dollar billion cuts for 10 years is excessive. there are additional savings to be made in defense. senator levin has said another heaven -- hundred dollars billion. the key is to -- we should not have the budget decisions driving these decisions exclusively. -and not be the main component. what is our military strategy? we are doing lots
this is very is he ductive if you're in the pentagon you have this list of individuals that you believe are plotting against the united states and so if you can sort of cross these names off the list it makes it feel as though you're keeping the united states safer. i think there is a faulty logic going on in there because we've really seen over the past decade the u.s. has been fighting these wars they're just killing these particular individuals doesn't itself make us safer because so often many more people come up. within the ranks. and i think there's also a tendency within the u.s. to sort of personalize al qaeda. so particularly in yemen we saw this with the american born cleric. this is the individual that the argument was advanced by some if he could be killed that the u.s. would be safer. he was of course killed in a drone strike in september of e 2011. al qaeda continues to plot. we know that they had a plan in which they gave this latest version of the underwear bomber thankfully to an undercover agent. so now he's been crossed off the list. and now we talk about the next one
to the white house to cia headquarters to the pentagon, the probe of former cia director david petraeus keeps on growing. petraeus resigned after admitting an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. jill kelley who was a friend of the petraeus family said broadwell sent her threatening e-mails. then kelli asked a front to look into the e-mails. then it was revealed he sent her shirtless photos of himself. it sounds like a horrible movie, but it's all true. carol is a reporter at the washington post. thank you very much for joining us. >> happy to be here, gary. >> what do you know about agent fred rhumphries and why was he o motivated to investigate those e-mails. something like that should not and would not rise to an fbi probe? >> it's a great question, and what we found out was the way he was being described was really inaccurate. people had initially reported and republican leaders had described him as a whistleblower who came forward, complaining to cantor, house majority leader cantor's office because he was worried the fbi investigation that uncovered an affair by the cia director
it can happen? >> not a chance. in washington, there's a game and i worked at the pentagon and there's a game called, fly it up the flagpole and see if anybody salutes. nobody is saluting at the nomination of susan rice, now, why? why don't i think they're going to do it. and confirmation hearings, what's going to happen? they're going to ask about benghazi, who changed those talking points? why did you have that fairy tale about a demonstration and a youtube video. the last thing the administration wants. they don't want an enemy, they'll put her name forward, not going to be support. withdraw it, give her another job, probably one that doesn't need senate confirmation. >> dave: if she's your pick, why do you put her out there. the president didn't believe everything in the talking points, i can't imagine he believed that. let me read you a quote about susan rice, she's ill-equipped to be the nation's top and she's managed to make an impressive array of enemies, that's from a liberal columnist, a very far left columnist, at washington post, and she has enemies on both sides of the a
think all of the forces in the pentagon and the white house and probably the state department believed that saddam hussein had been so fatally weakened in 1991 that he could never survive. as it turned out in fact that the essential forces of the republican guard and of his command and control structure had survived and as we saw with the slaughter of the shi'ites very shortly thereafter he was able to maintain his repressive regime. the question you directly asked me, should we have gone into baghdad? that would have been hard to do. that wasn't what the coalition had been formed to do. i doesn't -- he said dafle, say in the book we should have gone into baghdad. but i think the situation was badly misread and clearly it would have been better for the world, i think, had saddam hussein been sufficiently weakened so that his regime could have been toppled from within if only that. >> let me ask you about the war in iraq. as someone who asks others about this in your job -- >> this war now. >> this war now, and it's entirely up to you, do you feel strongly about the war one way or the o
